I'm CCing the tilecache list ([hidden email], ) on my response here.
If you could follow up on that list, that would be great.

It seems like your CGI scripts can't load data from . This is done using urllib: if
urllib in your Python CGI can't talk to the web, you won't be able to
use a WMS layer in this way.

I can't guess why this might happen, but that might give you a direction
to start to debug in.
